Glowing with programmed LEDs, rolling around in “spheremode” with twelve synchronized shell sections, and walking as a hexapod robot, this is MorpHex MKIII, the transforming robot, made in 2014 by kinematics expert Kåre Halvorsen.

Previously on this site: Halvorsen’s PhantomX Hexapod. Also, this massive Mantis turbo diesel hexapod walking machine.
